J. MAYER H. Metropol Parasol



 

With Metropol Parasol, J. MAYER H. Architects have created a new landmark for the city of Seville. The design by the architectural office received first prize in the competition for the redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnación at the center of the medieval district of the capital of Andalusia. Metropol Parasol has the potential to turn the Plaza into a new, contemporary urban center in a quarter that was long neglected. The building complex, with its large, parasol-like structures, contains a museum featuring archeological finds in the basement; an indoor market on the ground floor; an elevated square for events, bars, restaurants; and a panoramic walkway on the roof of the parasol. The multifunctional Metropol Parasol signals an initial step in the dynamic development of cultural and commercial facilities at the heart of Seville.

JDS Architects

Agenda. Can We Sustain our Ability to Crisis?



 

"AGENDA" is a catalog of 365 days, like a diary or journal: a collective narrative, personal and subjective. It documents the work and thinking of JDS Architects over a specific year marked by crisis, beginning on September 15th, 2008, the day that Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. The form of the book exploits the double meaning of its title, presenting the absurdities of day-to-day architectural practice while also staking our intent. Rather than a definitive direction, our agenda is a definitive attitude - of eagerness, enthusiasm, and optimism, of criticality and concern, of fun and inquiry. It is a directive, a motivation to act, at times without clear knowledge of where our agenda will lead. Change, the buzzword of the last U.S. presidential campaign, is the order of the day, and the task of "AGENDA" is to explore what kind of change will be needed if architects are to assume a political and social agency in this new landscape. Bringing together diverse forms of content, "AGENDA" is a product of vigilant observation, introspection, and engagement with outside thinkers and collaborators - artists, curators, politicians, authors, economists, journalists, developers, educators, and architects. "AGENDA" is a record of search and research, providing more questions than answers. "AGENDA" is unapologetically naive. "AGENDA" is an unorthodox architecture novel. "AGENDA" demystifies the practice of architecture, revealing process, research, fun, and failure. "AGENDA" looks to both the past and the future.
